GMail Outgoing SMTP Settings

Postby mcorrothers » Tue Mar 28, 2006 3:33 pm

I'm attempting to set up Poco mail out going settings for pop3 gmail. But when I attempt to send out mail, it does not connect. :cry:
My settings are:
Server: smtp.gmail.com
Use Outgoing Server Authentication with username and password
Authentication Type Plain
Does anyone see a problem with my setting?
Any suggestions welcome.

Mike:

My GMail smtp settings differ from or add to yours as follows:

Outgoing port number: 587 (As required by Gmail)
Authentication Type: Login
Enable Secure Connection (SSL) is checked.
Use TLS/STARTTLS is checked.

Hope this helps.

There are some paid options around, but once again, Gmail takes the prize for a robust free service.If you dont already have an email account with Gmail, you will need to set one up before you start. Leave a comment on this post and I will get an invite to you within a day or so.Once you have your account set up, enable pop mail in the gmail account settings online (log into www.gmail.com) simply enter these settings into any mail client, and use as your default smtp server for all accounts.

You don't need invites - it can be done from the GMail front page at http://mail.google.com or http://gmail.com.

Yes gmail is a very good (with reservations) free webmail client but Pocomail it is not.

Any email sent from PM using gmail's smtp service to send it will appear to come from your default gmail account From address and not necessarily from the From address you have used within PM.

You can set as many email addresses as you want in gmail as your From address but only one, the default, can be active at any one time.

Hope this helps a little.
